Anupama Kundoo's architectural practice, started in 1990, demonstrates a strong focus on material research to achieve architecture of low environmental impact, and development of building technologies that are socio-economically beneficial. The practice is supported by extensive research and experimentation.
Kundoo has had the experience of working, researching, and teaching architecture in a variety of cultural contexts across the world: TU in Berlin, AA in London, TU in Darmstadt, Parsons New School of Design in New York City, and University of Queensland in Brisbane. Her projects as well as writings have been featured in a wide range of books, international journals, and newspapers.
Kundoo was born in Pune, India in 1967, graduated from Sir JJ College of Architecture, University of Bombay in 1989, and obtained her Ph.D. from the Technische Universitaet Berlin in 2008.
